This week
Join Us for Worship
What do you do when you’re not sure of what a thing is, or what something means? You Google it, of course! The world has been changing at a rapid pace over the past 30 years, mainly because of advances in technology. Information (or misinformation) can be gained in a moment’s notice. 
Often times, our internet search engines present us with answers to questions that seem right, but may not be right from the perspective of a people of faith. In our new sermon series Google It! we will compare and contrast the ways this popular internet tool aligns with the Holy Scriptures.

Notes of Thanks
To Everyone at PUMC,

Thank y'all so much for such an amazing community to grow my faith in over the last 10 years! I also thank you guys for the very generous gifts given on Senior Sunday.

Dear PUMC Pastors, friends and family,

Thank you all so much for the many cards which you have sent me, and the phone calls. The messages of prayers and good wishes have been a joy for me. I also would like to thank the Congregational Care Committee members for taking the time to cook and deliver to me many delicious meals early on in my recuperation. And, for delivering me a wonderful "chocolate sundae".

Now that I am feeling so much better, I realize just how sick I was! My lungs still have some healing to do, but with God's healing hands and all of you praying for me, I feel the healing will be swift.

Thank you all so much
~ Mary Chapman
